How to Go About Sticker Printing

Stickers are a fun way to express yourself and your brand. They are durable and can be used on a variety of surfaces. The most popular shapes are circles and ovals followed by rectangles with rounded corners. When selecting a shape you need to take into account the amount of detail and if it will be die cut or kiss cut. The former is a process that uses metal dies to cut the sticker layer and its paper backing into a specific shape while the latter is digitally cutting and allows for more intricate designs and no die costs.

To print your own stickers, you will need a few supplies. A printer that can print CMYK, some type of adhesive sticker paper, and scissors or another method to cut your stickers into individual shapes. It is also important to remember that any art you use should have a clearly defined edge, called a bleed, so that your printer or at-home cutting machine will not cut into your design.

Alternatively, you can send your designs to a company that prints and cuts custom stickers for you. This is a good option for those who want to save time or do not have access to a printer and cutting machine. These services can provide high-quality stickers in a range of finishes and sizes. However, the downside is that you must order your stickers in batches and will have to pay upfront for the quantity you need.
